Last Monday the Student Activities Board and the African American Association came together to help the singles of Tech find that special someone for Valentine’s Day.

Students from all across campus came through to find a valentine. Even two players on the women’s Arkansas Tech basketball team made it to the event. The event was hosted by Glen Poole and Jaylissa Hampton, whose job was to give the baewatchers questions and tell them when time was up.

The way it went was the callers rotated around and talked to different women but only for two minutes. Each rotation period allowed the callers to find out some of the women’s favorite things.

Questions like “If you could have any superpower what would it be?” effectively broke the ice leaving the floor open for discussions leading to true personality traits being shown. Answers like “I would have mind reading abilities so I can better understand you” made girls laugh and blush at the possibility of a sensitive caller.

In the group, there was a serenading gentleman that made it his goal to make each girl feel special in his own way. Even though awkward moments were always present, the event was overall very fun and had a positive vibe throughout all the mingling.

Friendships were formed, laughs were heard, a few Facebook relationship statuses changed and fun was had.
